It carries the date 1660 at the top left and also on the reverse with the many signatures.
This wonderful old document is353 years old and comes from the time when Louis XIV The great sun king was on the throne.
The paper is thick and tactile and all strong.
The old sepia ink is beautifully scrolled and curled and I think it relates to a marriage. It is all quite legible too so would be a wonderful piece to translate.

There is some old brown staining as the photographs show but it simply adds to the period charm.
A stunning display piece and perhaps pages for framing.
